Why use Homeopathics?

Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in the
United States has been around 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the last decade.

This success is fueled by several factors:

 

  • Homeopathy is extremely effective. When the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid, complete and permanent.
  • Homeopathy is completely safe. Even babies and pregnant women can use Homeopathy without the danger of side effects.
  • Homeopathic remedies can also be taken alongside other medication without producing unwanted side effects.
  • Homeopathy is natural. Homeopathic remedies are normally based on natural ingredients.
  • Homeopathy works in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicines which suppress the immune system. (For example, cough medicines suppress the cough reflex, which is your body’s attempt to clear the lungs)
  • Homeopathic remedies are not addictive – once relief is felt, you should stop taking them. If no relief is felt, you are probably taking the wrong homeopathic remedy.
  • Homeopathy is holistic. It treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms. This often means that symptoms tackled with Homeopathy do not recur.
  • But there is a catch…

Every silver lining has a cloud, and there are two main barriers to the effective use of homeopathy:

  • Prescribing the right homeopathic remedy takes a little more time and patience than conventional medicine. Exactly the right remedy needs to be taken for your symptoms. There is no such thing as a standard homeopathic headache remedy (though, sadly that doesn’t mean no such product is sold…). The remedy you take has to be matched to your particular headache – where it occurs, what brings it on, what type of pain it is, what aggravates it, what makes it feel worse, your state of mind and what other symptoms you experience.
  • The sheer range of remedies in use can cause practical problems for an average sized pharmacy. If the right remedy is not one of 30 or so commonly used remedies, they can be difficult to obtain.
  • We built a remedy finder. Type in your symptoms in plain English, answer a few questions and the homeopathic remedy finder will help you to work out exactly which remedy you need to take.

How Homeopathy Can Help You!

Homeopathic remedies (also called homeopathic) are a system of medicine based on three principles:

* Like cures like
For example, if the symptoms of your cold are similar to poisoning by
mercury, then mercury would be your homeopathic remedy.

* Minimal Dose
The remedy is taken in an extremely dilute form; normally one part of the remedy to around 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water.

* The Single Remedy
No matter how many symptoms are experienced, only one remedy is taken, and that remedy will be aimed at all those symptoms.

Similar principals form the basis of conventional allergy treatment, where the allergic substance is given in a small dose, and in vaccines where an impotent form of the virus is given to bolster the immune system against that particular virus.

“I” Question To Ponder

“The un-examined life is not worth living.”
~Socrates

In considering an “I” , I ponder these questions:

1 – Why do I want an “I” Exam?

2 – What do I expect it to help me achieve in my life?

3 – What complaints, if any, am I experiencing with my eyes?

4 – When was the last time I had a thorough eye health exam including the use of eye drops to dilate my pupils by an optometrist or ophthalmologist?

5 – Have I experienced any past eye, head or body trauma abuse or serious illness?

6 – What medications am I currently taking?

7 – What vitamins and other health & herbal supplements am I currently taking?

8 – Note the successes AND failures in life in which I have been unable to reach the goals that I have set for myself, knowing that I have the brains and abilities to do so—yet I have been unable to achieve them.

Ponder this concept:

When I say, ‘I can do it’, it is the E-Y-E that can do it.

When I say, “I can’t do it’ it is the E-Y-E that can’t do it.

As a brief overview:

9 – How was my parents relationship with each other and how did they each interact with me?

10 – Do I tend to hold my breath or find myself ‘mini-gasping’ and under what circumstances?

11 – Am I fearful of heights?  Would I go to the edge of a cliff and look down without feeling uncomfortable?

14 – How do I experience driving?  As a passenger do I find myself hitting the ‘imaginary’ brake? Do I notice myself getting nervous or tense?

15 – Can I read quickly, smoothly and efficiently without having to re-read what I have read?  (especially textbook material)

16 – Does what I read hold my interest or does it seem boring? Do I enjoy reading or is it a chore to read?

17 – When I read aloud to others do the words go from the page to my eyes to my brain (understanding) and then to my mouth OR does it seem to go
from the page to my eyes to my mouth and I have to ‘work’ at trying to understand what I am reading?

18 – What qualities do you feel that you are missing that would enable you to be the kind of person that you really want to be?

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will
come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship.
Laws to restrict the art of healing to one class of men…
are un-American and despotic.”
